: waoh! where are all the posts?!
: ps. in case anybody noticed my absence...my computer is in Gateway Country being repaired...poor thing...my dear sweet laptop now if I can even mention her name...but let's be brave.
+++We had a slight glitch...named Shawn, who wrote to alert the host here that I was slandering and defaming Jackie Bejan...I don't know if I can say her name...is it defamation now to just mention her?
+++So, once the situation was explained to the Host, they agreed to open us up again...as long as we don't defame Jackie. I am going to study the rules here real carefully to make sure we are in compliance at all times. Will also hunt up another host wherever.
+++The issue sort of is...when you haven't much left to fight back and defend yourself with...can you do anything or must the people who try to break you get away with it?
+++For instance there are some e-mails I would like to put here...from Jackie herself...is that breech of whatever...is it an invasion of privacy? Don't know...I'm sure Shawn will let someone know.
+++We have a choice in Iraq, Turkey and America, as anywhere else. We can accept whatever comes our way...take what anyone wants to dish out...or we fight back. In my own case I never picked a fight with Homer, John, Atour or Jackie...yet these people in various ways used their positions and their influence and their titles to do and say what they wanted to...sort of like the Israelis can squeeze the ....nose....of any Palestinian and he must not say "ow"...or they get to do it again. Doesn't take much brains to figure out the Palestinians are going to lose if they continue to play by those rules...so you have to change the rules....Like old George Washington did...whose views on the Jackie Bejan of his day would have gotten him hanged as well as sued.
The idea that I set out one day willy nilly to slam people, patrons no less who spent thousands, as they never tire of reminding us, is ridiculous. It's far more likely that I have resorted to about the only means left to me to defend myself and my family...as Jeff now has to defend himself from a two million dollar lawsuit...and for doing what? Nothing. But that isn't the point...the point is to make anyone who displeases someone pay...and pay and pay. Which is exactly the point I was making...and what got me here in the first place.
